A Color Burst Deer....

Good afternoon all and good to have you join me today....I am just sat with a lovely cup of tea and thought that we could have a catch up.....

Yesterday I had a lovely time when I met some of the lovely ladies from our Hazel Grove classes, we had tea , cake and a good old catch up.......just perfect.....I do think that life is so hectic and we are all so busy it is great to take five minutes out, get off the treadmill and just enjoy simple pleasures in life....

Have you used the Color Burst powders yet? As you know I do love these wonderful little bottles of magic...

Today I am going to talk you through using them to paint with...instead of the usual making a background...

Here is the card design....do hope that you like it....

I started with a piece of stencil card....I chose this because it is so good when you add water to it...

I ran it through my eBosser with the wonderful stag stencil. Oh it does emboss really well.

Next I just put some small amounts of the Color Burst powders into my pallet , added some water and just had fun painting...The colours blend so well...

Then I just painted in some grass so that it grounded our proud stag...and edged him with a black fine liner pen...

To frame the design I used some Black Soot Distress Ink.

And then added two panels that I had made using up the paint that was left in my pallet.....some mopping up and water spritzing....

And finally a black gem for his eye...and one for his nose.....

A twist of colour for our handsome stag....but then we can make him any colour we want ...that is the beauty of having our stencils...and just having a play.....

And let's be honest we all love to play.....and experiment.....

Right I had better go as it is Karl's Birthday today.....and yes I did manage to make him a card....all be it late last night ...he is my best friend and my rock....

So I had better go and show him just how much I love him....

Enjoy your evening, and thanks for popping in, I really do appreciate it....

Hugs,

Jo. xxxx

  3. Finally managed to grab 5 minutes to sit and read your blog. Seems like ages since I had time to stop by for a catch up, but today is the first day of my holidays and I've woken up wide awake, even earlier than on a work day.
    Thanks for a great tutorial on a majestic stag. Love your use of Colour burst. Hope you and Karl had a lovely time celebrating his birthday. Hugs & love from Jeanette xxx
